Yesterday, the complete collection of Björk studio albums was released on Bandcamp. For the entire day (June 19), all proceeds from sales will be donated to Black Lives Matter UK in support of Bandcamp’s NAACP fundraiser.
On this day in history (June 13, 1995), Bjork released her second studio album Post featuring the singles Army Of Me, Isobel, It’s Oh So Quiet, Hyperballad and Possibly Maybe. Bjork recorded this album after she left her home town of Iceland in favor or London.
Björk has announced that she will be releasing a line of limited edition cassette tapes. Keeping with the vintage theme, Björk is also offering a collection of vintage t-shirts featuring artwork from Venus As A Boy, Post and Homegenic.
Most of my current musical taste has been sculpted by the music from the legendary Detroit radio show, Big Sonic Heaven – hosted by Darren Revell. That show pioneered a new music movement that celebrated modern ethereal music featuring a variety of dreampop, trip hop, brit pop and more.
This mix doesn’t feature a particular genre of music. Instead, it features songs of a few different styles all of which make you “feel”. Some of them draw you in with the lyrics, others with the vocals, or perhaps the music. When listening to these songs, you can feel the emotion and honesty of the artist in their delivery.
